Young Girl In Critical Condition After Nearly Drowning At Quarry Park

A young girl is in critical condition after nearly drowning at Quarry Park Saturday afternoon.

Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson says just after 4 p.m. four-year-old Hazel Dobbs began to drown. Dobbs was not wearing a life jacket. When mother 29-year-old Earnestine Williams realized she was drowning and called for help, Nathan Sisk of Foley ordered everyone out of the water. Sisk asked strong swimmers to look for Dobbs and several people went under to help.

Eventually swimmer Jason Weber found Dobbs about 10-15 feet under the water and brought her to the surface. An unidentified woman then began to perform CPR. Three people continued to perform CPR until the Gold Cross Ambulance arrived.

Dobbs eventually regained a pulse, and was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital where she is in critical condition.

DNR to Review Pike Regulations

Facebook Twitter

09/17/2018 - 3:45 AM

The Department of Natural Resources will be holding a meeting to gather public input on experimental fishing regulations for northern pike.

The regulations were put into place on East and West Lake Sylvia in Wright County in 2009. Under the experimental order, all northern pike between 24-36 inches must immediately be released, and one over 36 inches is allowed to be kept with a limit of three.

Since the regulations were put into place, the average size of northern pike has gone down from 22-inches to 19-inches with the percentage of pike between 24 and 30 inches also decreasing.

The fisheries data has shown applying these experimental rules would benefit northern pike populations statewide.

 

The meeting will be held on Thursday, October 4th from 6-8 p.m. at the Southside Township Hall in Annandale.

While not completely returned to normal, the classrooms at Apollo High School have been cleared to open.

The return of all students will take place on Monday, September 24. Additional rooms should be re-opening in the near future.

Deputy Hit By Bow And Arrow

An incident involving a stolen vehicle ended with a deputy with an arrow in his arm.

Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson says just after 10:00 a.m., a 31 year-old man from the Osakis/Alexandria area stole a truck in Osakis, which he drove to Sauk Centre to a John Deere store, crashing into the building. He then drove through several backyards and into parked cars before crashing into a garage on 10th Street. The suspect ran into the house through an unlocked door and appeared with a compound bow on the second floor. The bow belonged to the homeowner.

The suspect shot the bow and hit Stearns County Deputy Paul Orvis through the forearm. Officers shot at the suspect and hit him three times in the shoulder, buttocks, and his hand. Officers and a negotiator started talking to the man, where he told them his injuries.

After nearly two hours, the man appeared from the upstairs, where officers tasered him and took him into custody just before 1:00 p.m. He was taken by helicopter to a St. Cloud hospital for further treatment. Deputy Paul Orvis went into surgery to remove the shaft of the arrow and a possible broken arm. He is listed in good condition by the hospital.

Homes in the area of the incident were evacuated and Sauk Centre Schools went into lockdown.

The attack is still under investigation.

St. Cloud State Meteorology Professor Among Creators Of Wildfire Prediction Tool

A tool that can help wildfire forecasting has been created by several researchers, including a St. Cloud State meteorology professor.

The U.S Forest Service says the Hot-Dry-Windy Index (HDW) would help fire managers anticipate conditions that have the potential to cause wildfires. The HDW predicts fires based on three variables: temperature, moisture, and wind.

St. Cloud State meteorology professor Alan Srock is the lead author of a study of the HDW. The science journal Atmosphere has published the study.

While the options for the tool have expanded, it's not expected to be used on an operational basis until more tests have been run.
